Just wondering how many of you have done this tour and what your thoughts were on it. Have been thinking about maybe giving this one a try next year.

I haven't done this yet, but may do this tour this coming July. I'm a member of's Team. As a member, if I can get a team of 5 cyclists, the 6th one is free. Therefore, if there are anyone out there would like to do this tour, especially those who live in So Cal, please contact me at We all can save some $$$.

This is a great event, and just small enough that riders truly "bond" with each other, not so overwhelming a zoo as Ride the Rockies.

If you are coming from elsewhere just be forwarned that it is usually a somewhat aggressive mountain route... most days 80-100 and usually in the high country. Certainly doable but folks should be aware.

Also, high country riding can be treacherous due to weather. The last two years I think that there has been one afternoon of HORRIBLE sleety, cold t-storms. Decent rain gear and cool weather garb is a MUST.

You'll love it.

I have done the RAGBRAI (ride across IOWA) for the last two years. Its fun, but I would like to do something different and I happen to love Colorado. It sounds like just what I'm looking for.
